Mission statements get some deserved criticism.  Only a few really drive organizations.  Most are simply wishful thinking and a collection of borrowed concepts.  And then you trip discover the power of one that is a direct hit.  An example of a direct hit?  "Helping people find their way back to God."  HPFTWBTG.  That one is absolutely spot on and it drives the activity of Community Christian Church

Need further clarification?  You can see it in Dave Ferguson's recap of yesterday's activity.  Community Christian Church is an organization that exudes a tight connection with the mission.  Awesome to see…even from a distance.
